Family and I were visiting town and this was our first stop to eat. We were very impressed with the food and enjoyed ourselves so much the first time we came back for dinner. Staff was friendly but the service was a bit slow. This may be a cultural thing but nevertheless it was slightly annoying to spend over 1.5... More

The flavours were authentic and obviously home made. We both had starters, then had a lovely pasta dish and a fillet steak. Both were delicious. The... More

Had dinner with relatives at this beautiful restaurant, outside under a large tree canopy. Service was efficient, very friendly with good advice and explanation of the menu. All choices our group made turned out to be good. No haute cuisine but tasty and good value for money!

Saw other reviews and took the time to find the right place. Daughter said "Best Pizza Ever", son echoed her. Great quality pizza at reasonable price. Wish we'd found it earlier in our holiday

This was a charming restaurant in CertaldoAlto. The staff were fantastic and we enjoyed the meal a lot. The quality of the food was great and the outside courtyard eating was very comfortable.

Probably the best pizza you will ever eat. This is pizza as it should be. Not chopped up topping but laid out in sections. You can pick one and then personalise it. The open wine is good and perfect with pizza.
